Gas Safety Certificates for Landlords

Officially called a CP12 Gas Safety Report, the commonly named landlord certificate is a legal requirement when a property is let to tenants. The certificate must be valid and available to tenants and managing agents of the property. We are here to issue landlord certificates for the Isle of Sheppey and Sittingbourne area – call us to arrange an inspection.

What is a landlord certificate?

A landlord certificate is a document to show that a rented property has been inspected and the gas supply has passed the inspection. Only properties that have a gas supply require a landlord certificate, if there is only electricity then the inspection is not required. Only a Gas Safe accredited engineer can carry out the gas inspection and issue the certificate – the team at JPM Gas is qualified and available to do this for landlords in Kent.

Gas Safe register

A Gas Safety Inspection must be completed every 12 months to keep it valid. During the report, all gas appliances will be inspected for safety, this includes the gas boiler, gas water heater, gas oven, gas hob, and gas fire. These appliances are checked to make sure they are completely safe to use. There are a few other things that are checked such as the location of each appliance and the ventilation available.

The main purpose of a landlord safety inspection is to ensure the safety of the tenants. It’s not an opinion about the facilities provided, it’s a check by a professional who states that what is in the property is appropriate to use.
